I have been coming to Cancun for the past 20 years, and now I am living here for few months. Cancun is full of restaurants which offer almost the same food and it's hard to find a restaurant which really distingues itself. Well, Pik Nik REALLY does and stands from the crowd..and it took me 20 years to discover it!... More

We ate here twice during a recent visit and the food was fine on both occasions. But I have a hard time understanding why this restaurant gets such great reviews. It's a pleasant place with outdoor seating on a pedestrian street near Parque las Palapas. Service is good but nothing exceptional. I had fajitas the first time and they were... More

Located in pedestrian only street of Ave. Tulum, on Tulipanes. Comfortable outdoor sitting with excellent service by Jesus. Large variety of Mexican dishes, reasonably priced, but we'll executed. Staff have a fairly good understanding of English. Definitely worth a return visit.

The adobado pork burrito was great. And definitely try the lime soup. The chicken tacos were also well prepared and plentiful. Our meal here was much better than the neighboring establishment.

We decided to come to this place after reading all the good reviews. My girlfriend and I both had margaritas which were nice and strong. I had the ceviche with mixed seafood and my girlfriend had tacos. I was expecting more after all the reviews but have to say it was only good enough to get a passing mark. The... More

We have been visiting Pik Nik for many years and they make us feel like family. At our last visit we talked to the people on the next table and found out that we had recommended the restaurant to them several years ago. Also like us they visited the restaurant when ever in the Cancun area. All of the food... More

Great place to eat if you are in downtown Cancun. We stopped here for dinner on a Thursday night. Had a nice table outside on the street. Delicious margaritas and chicken in mole sauce. Very reasonable prices. Also very close to the downtown square where locals hang out.

Enjoyed the chicken soup and garlic shrimp, both outstanding. The food was very good and service excellent. Solid four on the food and fives on value and service.
